6th August 2010 -- My record record of being stopped by a plain-clothed police officer on the Northern Line. I was taken to a London Underground control room where I was formally (given a carbon copy of the record he made) 'advised' not to advertise on Transport for London. So we will have to think of a new strategy and would welcome ideas. On the way home after our Couch-surfing meet we stuck to the advice of not advertising; Bearsac simply told passengers his name and that he is famous on the internet but that he is not allowed to advertise his website or owner's book so won't give the titles. Out of 'respect' to the tube copper we won't even mention my web-site URL or my book title in this description or this video -- even though my book raises awareness of Asperger's Syndrome in adults and women and has inspired people to go on their travels with their own teddy bear! Shame we didn't film the incident the copper dropped his handcuffs when taking them from his pocket to prove to unbelieving Debra he was a policeman! He was a nice enough about it but why the hell did he even bother. Sure he'd wished that he'd not. Whilst waiting for our local train we met another police officer (off duty) and he said he has been on my website. We told him about the incident and he said that he, and most police would not have bothered and couldn't understand why this one did. When Debra said that the young policeman had dropped his handcuffs and seemed embarrassed he explained that it is seen as a sign of weakness, so that's why. I guess it made the young copper human to us though and Debra even thought that he was quite cute!
